    Question How has UIGEA and payment processor turmoil affected March affiliate revenue?

    For one last time I'm continuing the monthly tradition of polling members to see how they are doing in March as compared with last September before the current turmoil in the industry began with the passage of the UIGEA.

    March is the second full month that reflects the impact of the withdrawal of Neteller from the US marketplace, and my prediction is that this month's poll will show members operating in the US market continue to be hit harder than they were prior to the current payment processing issues.

    In answering this month's poll, I would answer in terms of revenue you have earned rather than revenue actually received. I know money you have not been able to receive does not pay the bills, but it is still money that is yours, at least in theory.

    Previous monthly polls are listed below:

    October 2006 poll: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=168495
    November 2006 poll: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=168738
    December 2006 poll: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=168998
    January 2007 poll: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169496
    February 2007 poll: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169931

    After this month I think I'll switch to just comparing the last couple months in these polls. After all, our focus needs to be on improvement on a month-to-month basis, not how things are compared with a half year ago when the world was a different place for online gaming.

    March was just ok. Not bad and not great. I feel fortunate to be hanging in there but I can't help but mourn what "could have been" without this mess.

    March was a superb month revenue wise. My 3rd best ever!!

    This is mainly attributed to my other main site www.BetSage.com starting to perform in it's own right and not being at all reliant on US Traffic

    I have spent a lot of time (and money) in targeting the Asian, European, and Canadian markets.

    In saying this, this month has been excellent for me. I would say about up 15% from when I was back in September of 2006.

    I have also started working with some new, better affiliate programs which I have found has had a much better conversion for players, as well as player retention.

    I hope that next month will be better, as I continue to target other areas besides the US.
